  1. Can someone explain how the auto select of the Mscaler operates? Does it switch to a newly started source? When listening to music using USB, will it switch to tv on optical as soon as I turn on TV, or do I need to stop the music? And does it switch back to music if I pause and play it? What does it mean that USB has priority? And with more than two sources?
  2. And now on topic: I am still trying to pursue that state (of equipment) where I can indeed make out the differences in cables etc. I have tried a speaker upgrade (from Totem Model One Signatures to Dynaudio Heritage Special) and that really made a difference but when I took my Chord TT to the local Chord dealer to compare to TT2 I realised those model ones already let me hear some faults of the TT1... So now I have to do both (trying to ignore the additional costs for the mscaler), and I guess source indeed comes first. I initially was very surprised by the difference USB (cleanup and cab
  3. If you think alcohol helps for music appreciation you really should try the stuff they sell at the store @sphinxsixposted a picture of (which happens to be in the town I live too). Same particles as that cigar, much different experience.
  4. I would like to promote the use of the upvote button (arrow up) for me too and I agree!
  5. I have one I find stranger still: at my office, several monitors connected with a Dell usb display hub loose sync as soon as someone sitting on a height adjustable office chair in front of the monitor stands up from the chair. At first, they were looking for cables under the carpet, but there are none! Gas-lift office chairs can create EMI when you stand up from them. Check your DAC-behaviour next time you are jumping up and down on your office chair. https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/738618-display-intermittently-blanking-flickering-or-
  6. It is the other way around, get better sound has been there for ages. And though the sound barrier is newer, 2013 indeed. As I own GBS I have access to his quarterly notes, and after posting my previous message I checked those: he is still busy with it/it is not finished yet. A well, it probably will be delivered together with my LH Labs Wave ;-) ;-)
  7. To me it was a summary version of Jim Smith's Get Better Sound, enhanced with correct soundstage depth (does anyone know if his TTSB ever took off? (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ttsb/through-the-sound-barrier)
  8. With my microrendu I prefer the isoregen in place. With the ultrarendu without. But I am going to retry of course, now with your tip (I used Sinnerman, live Philips recording) The etherregen made far more of a difference than ultrarendu or microrendu with or without isoregen, that is for sure.
  9. In my experience/case removing the isoregen between ultrarendu and (Hugo TT) DAC gave slightly better results, so do share your thoughts :-)

    Peter, that is a nice deviation from other pictures about a floating ground ;-)
